"I stayed here while I was working on location in LA and it quickly became my home away from home!
I worked long hours and it was the most relaxing place to be when I had time off. So quiet when I needed to sleep and so close to the beach so I could take long walks in the morning and enjoy the ocean and sun. It has so many fabulous reading areas. My favorite is the area near the windows facing the walk street. So peaceful. And a fireplace and a hot tub and a grill!
The bed was one of the more comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on and they provide excellent sheets and plenty of towels.
I'm from nyc so being able to walk places is very important to me. I could walk to Abbot Kinney in 5 min where I had many coffee options (blue bottle and Intelligentsia) and great food and shops. Every Sunday morning I would also walk to the Santa Monica farmers market which was 15 min max and a nice walk. I cannot wait to come back! I am almost hesitant to post this review because I want to keep it a secret. The place is also clean and well designed/decorated and the owners are so attentive when you need them but otherwise leave you be.
I will be back I hope in the near near future."

"My family of 5 stayed at Chris's cabin in July 2015. We had a great time and loved the cabin.
Communication with Chris was excellent from the time I booked the cabin right through to our stay there and afterwards as well. After I booked the cabin, Chris arranged a call and we spent about 15 minutes going through everything, including access to the cabin, rental agreement and arranging the provision of linen as we were traveling from Europe. Many of Chris's guests are from LA so it makes sense for them to bring their own linen (remember this is a cabin in a mountain village resort), but that wasn't an option for us. Close to the time of our arrival, Chris had to change the lock on the front door of the cabin. He notified us by email in plenty of time and requested that I confirm that I had received the notification, rather than take a chance that I might have missed it while travelling.
The cabin itself is exactly what you would hope for, for a mountain cabin. It is in a quiet, peaceful location and is approx 15 minutes walk from the Pint Mountain village centre.
Chris has everything in the cabin well labelled and I have no doubt that if we had any problems locating anything he would have been able to tell us exactly where to find it.
We made us of the pool in the village centre while there, which was great on a hot July day. There are several mountain trails in the area. We didn't have enough time in the area to do all of there. As we were there in July, bug repellant is needed.
Overall, we enjoyed our time at Chris's cabin and would be very happy to stay there again, if we're ever in that part of the world again."

"Highland House was perfect for my family of 4. Beautiful walk to the beach and everything we needed to enjoy ourselves when we got there. Shops and restaurants just a short walk away, we parked the car in the garage on arrival and didn't take it out for 4 days! We will definitely be back next year."

"We stayed in this lovely beach bungalow for a little of 9 months while we figured out our next move! The Landlord is very responsive and accommodating and overall a very nice and thoughtful person. The apt is well maintained and truly a gem. We fell in love with being so close to the ocean and felt very spoiled being able to hear the waves crash as you fall sleep. Not to mention having access to south bay's best beach (Manhattan beach of course!), to the bike path and the Strand. We enjoyed walking down to the beach to watch the most beautiful sunsets. This beach rental is truly magical! We got really lucky with this apt. Thank you to the owner for everything and for being extra attentive. I highly recommend staying here!"
